REVIEW
H Gupta, G Ghimire, R Naeije
Pulmonary hypertension is a common but complex clinical problem. When suspected in an appropriate clinical setting or detected incidetally, an array of investigative tools are employed with an intent to confirm the diagnosis, define aetiology, evaluate the functional and haemodynamic impairment, define treatment options, monitor the therapy, and establish long-term prognosis. However, no single tool provides comprehensive information that encompasses the aforementioned aims. Therefore, judicious use of these tools is of paramount importance, in order to maximise outcome and cost-effectiveness, while minimising risks and redundancies...

OBJECTIVES: The relationship between educational level and mortality is well known. This has been shown in the Reykjavik Study and was only partly accounted for by unequal distribution of known risk factors. The objective of the present study was to explore the relationship between educational level and physical activity and whether that relationship could partly explain differences in mortality. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This is a part of the Reykjavik Study. Presented is data from 18,912 participants, divided into four groups by educational level...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the use of endoscopic surgery for hypertensive cerebral hemorrhage. METHODS: Sixteen patients with hyertensive intracerebral hematoma were evacuated with neuroendoscope. The surgical invasive markers, volume of remaining hematoma, and prognosis were compared with those of 19 comparable patients undergoing conventional craniotomy. RESULTS: Complete evacuation of hematoma was achieved in 9 patients, and partial evacuation in 7...

OBJECTIVES: To demonstrate the importance of measuring both the horizontal and vertical components of equity in order to examine whether patients are receiving the health care that they need. METHODS: HASH(0x3828af8) DESIGN: A theoretical demonstration followed by analysis of a prospectively collected national random sample of acute cardiac admissions to 94 hospitals in the UK. PATIENTS: 1064 patients under 70 years old...

Monitoring the blood pressure of individuals throughout the day and night has p;rovided information concerning the variability of blood pressure, the diurnal fluctuation of blood pressure levels, and the often exaggerated response of some individuals to the medical environment, the 'white-coat' effect. The average of multiple pressures obtained during the waking hours has been shown to correlate better with the degree of target-organ damage from hyhpertension than does the average of a few readings performed over a brief period of time in a physician's office...

The evolution of awareness and management of hypertension and hypercholesteroloemia in the department of Haute-Garonne, France, was studied using 1265 male subjects aged 35-64 years who participated in the WHO-MONICA population surveys conducted in 1985-87 (675 subjects) and 1989-91 (590 subjects). After correcting for measurement bias in the second survey, there were 186 and 175 hypertensive subjects in the first and in the second survey, respectively, of which 47% and 59% were aware of their condition (p < 0...

The assessment of the renal arteries is particularly important in the detection of a renovascular cause of the arterial hypertension. The purpose of the present study was twofold: to evaluate the accuracy of duplex scanning in non-invasively diagnosing renal artery stenoses in hypertensive patients, and to determine the results of transluminal angioplasty of renal artery stenoses as assessed by duplex scanning. In 76 patients with arterial hyertension, 170 renal arteries (18 kidneys supplied by two renal arteries) were examined by both duplex scanning and angiography (DSA in intraarterial and intravenous technique, and conventional arteriography)...

1. The pathogenesis of hypertension in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) is considered to consist of neurogenic and non-neurogenic factors, both of which contribute to initiation and maintenance mechanisms. 2. Neurogenic factors have been demonstrated by the destruction of the central nervous system, sympathectomy, recording of sympathetic discharge, hind-limb perfusion and study of noradrenaline. These factors are mainly involved in the initiation of hypertension, and they appear to diminish in importance after the establishment of hypertension, as indicated by the noradrenaline-turnover study...

Cardiovascular adaptation to the sudden inflation of a balloon in the descending aorta was investigated in intact awake, standing dogs. The balloon inflation raised pressure in the arterial bed proximal from the balloon. Initially, it lowered heart rate and cardiac output. After 4 sec, heart rate and cardiac output began increasing again and within the next 14 sec, these functions returned almost to the control values. The restoration of cardiac output was associated with a further rise in aortic pressure. These findings are consistent with the hypothesis that the prime circulatory adaptation to a hindrance to arterial flow is restoration of blood flow even though this requires a further elevation of arterial pressure...
